Science has gone just far enough to let people enjoy 90% of what's great about Naruto without having to do what sucks about Naruto, that being actually watching Naruto.

hm, thats a valid argument, but its also kinda like saying ur not gonna smoke weed, but you'll inject 5000 fluid ounces of cocain directly into ur bloodstream as long as it all goes away in 20 seconds

I've never seen an episode of Naruto
Good. U should do ur best to keep it that way.

Nah, I'd say it's like making yourself hallucinate with lights and ping pong balls taped over your eyes. All the good stuff, no side effects, and little time wasted.

I'll do that

Apparently there's this thing where if you tape ping pong balls over your eyes and stare at a red light for 20 minutes, you'll have hallucinations. That's not it exactly, but it's the general idea. It's like a cheat code for you brain. I've always wanted to try it, but idek how I'd go about doing that

I'd argue but I won't.

Yes. Read it if you absolutely have to but the show is just filler. Not even good filler. Just filler.

I'll do that

I have never heard of that

Well ok some of the filler is kinda cool. I can't think of any specific examples but I'm almost certain that there was like... one fuller arc that was ok

That ping pong thing sounds mildly dangerous but ok

It's not actually a hallucinogen so there's no physical risk...I've read a little about it and the hallucinations seem pretty mild. Plus you could always take off the pig pong balls if it's too intense. There's always the risk of getting a headache tho...

I didn't watch the anime cause of filler fear so I'll take your word for it my pal.

I'm not putting ping pong on my eyes.

I'd say you should give it a try, but I haven't even tried it myself, so,

I don't remember what the lights are supposed to be doing, I think you have to stare at a red dot or something. If you have epilepsy you probably shouldn't try it, though. Headaches are the worst 9_9
